MP Blows Alarm Over JBs Killers

It appears there are attempts to conceal the actual faces behind the gruesome murder of the ebullient New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North in the Eastern Region, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu aka JB.

According to the MP for Obuasi East, Edward Ennin, he suspects there is official cover-up of the real perpetrators of the heinous crime.

According to the vociferous MP, there is a video recording that appears to show the moment assailants of the murdered MP left the crime scene at his Shiashie, East Legon, residence in Accra.

A close circuit Television (CCTV) appears to have captured that moment when Mr Ennin said a white Nissan altima left the scene after the gruesome murder at the dawn of February 9, 2016.

The Obuasi East MP made the mind-blowing revelation on adom TV last week.

He said what he saw on the video clearly showed that the security agencies investigating the gruesome murder had not done enough to track down the perpetrators of the dastardly crime.

“I am telling you that I have watched a CCTV video footage. The assailant had dressed like someone ready to fight karate. He was in black attire. a resident in the area had his/her CCTV camera capturing the assailant.

There was a white car (altima K45) which is popular in town. What was the car doing in the area at that material moment?” he queried.

He insisted, “I’ve watched the video and I can confirm what I am saying,” and even swore on the name of God Almighty that he had indeed watched the footage.

According to the Obuasi East MP, nobody should politicise the murder of his colleague because anybody could become a victim. “If the person involved is NPP or NDC, he/she should face the full rigours of the law, otherwise we are all vulnerable to some of these wicked acts,” he charged.

He said that when the East legon police arrested the suspect, he gave “a very interesting statement,” adding, “The moment he started mentioning names, the authorities quickly transferred the case to the Police Headquarters.

“When you have a case and it is transferred to the Police Headquarters then be reminded that it will be the end of that case because the facts will change.

“A whole MP has been stabbed to death in his own room and we can’t find the killers? I have told JB’s family never to let the case die. I have asked them what they are doing. Nobody should try to play politics in this. it is a murder case and we should find the killers.”

The MP asked, “When you go to the DVLA won’t they tell you the owner of that car?”

A 20-year-old mobile phone dealer at Madina Zongo Junction, Accra, Daniel Asiedu, has been arrested in connection with the murder.

Daniel Asiedu, aka sexy Don Don, has been charged at an accra central District Magistrate court, awaiting committal to the High court for allegedly killing the MP.

However, the people he named initially as his accomplices before the case was transferred to the Police Headquarters, in the persons of one avenger and Junior agoogo, have still not been arrested.

The murdered MP, who left behind a wife and two daughters, was laid to rest at Akyem Old Tafo at the weekend.

Family Curses

At the funeral ground, the family rained curses on the killers of the MP and their collaborators and called on the gods to deal with those behind the gruesome act.

“I pray that the Good Lord forgives those who put my brother in that state. But for me, I say that may they go mad and walk the streets of wherever they are and make them naked and helpless,” depict the stance of the family of JB as conveyed by his brother, Frank Adu Jnr, when they bid him farewell.

Pained by the callous murder of the MP, who has been described by many as a philanthropist par excellence, the family could not come to terms with the incident.

Sexy Don Don, the murder suspect, had told the police investigators in his initial statement that he was contracted to kill JB for a fee of GH¢2,000 and that he used part of the money to buy shoes after leaving his slippers at the residence of the deceased.

He also claimed that the two other people who involved him in the assignment – Junior Agoogo and avenger – are all living at Pig farm, accra.

However, when the Bureau of National investigations (BNI) took over the case, the storyline changed.

The suspect is being kept in solitary confinement at the BNI cells.
